At the start of the holiday season Sai Kung witnessed at least three traffic incidents over the past 24 hours.
First, a 35-year-old motorcyclist was arrested at Clear Water Bay Road in Sai Kung for allegedly assaulting a police officer and possession of offensive weapons. Police mounted an anti-speeding operation near Ta Ku Ling San Village. They stopped a speeding motorbike rider and gave him a ticket. At this point he became agitated. He started his motorbike and rammed it in the direction of the policemen. Police officers later seized nunchuks from his bags. During the incident, a male police officer injured his hands and feet and was taken to hospital.
